This is a glimpse into the life of an unsatisfied 20-something trying to get his feet on the ground. The humor is dry and unsual but still relatable.

The first thing you should know: there is a drawing of a stapler in the prologue of this book. For no reason. A non sequitor beyond all non sequitors. And yet it is the apotheosis of why this book is …
